From the RSA 2012 Conference in San Francisco, CA – February 27, 2012 – Voltage Security®, the world leader in data-centric encryption and key management, today announced Voltage SecurityMobile Plus, the company's comprehensive initiative to extend its existing mobile security solutions to protect the new generation of mobile devices, applications and data. Driven by the massive global consumption of mobile devices, and the recent dramatic adoption of tablet computers by the broader workforce, Voltage is building on its leadership in data-centric protection for business-critical sensitive data, wherever it is and wherever it might go.
According to Forrester Research, "Mobility will drive new data-killing initiatives. The advent of the extended enterprise and the ease of accessing corporate information anytime, anywhere, and on any device will create new pressures on security teams to encrypt data. Mobile devices are easy to lose and easy to steal. Enterprise-level encryption is the best hope for securing data on these devices." (Ref: "Killing Data"; report issued by Forrester Research, Inc. January 30, 2012.)
"The Voltage Security Mobile Plus initiative builds on our leadership in delivering data-centric encryption to the largest companies in the world," said Mark Bower, vice president of product management at Voltage Security. "We are taking our expertise in data-centric security, and our encryption and key-management leadership, and building a comprehensive set of data-centric mobile security solutions for email, files, data and payments security."
Builds on Voltage leadership, extends data-centric protection
Current mobile security solutions focus on creating boundaries within the devices where data can be stored and accessed. When encryption is used, it is typically non-user friendly, non-application specific, lacking granular policy controls and relying on antiquated key management that requires massive investment to scale.
With Voltage, the data itself is protected so that it can move between applications and devices without disrupting existing processes and user experience.
Voltage solutions use Voltage Identity-Based Encryption™ (IBE) to deliver simplified stateless key management, scalable to millions of users with minimal overhead investment. Voltage IBE is proven as the foundation of Voltage SecureMail™, one of the most widely-used secure email solutions globally, with roughly 50 million users worldwide and approximately one billion IBE secured business emails sent in 2011.
Voltage Format-Preserving Encryption™ (FPE) is a widely-adopted Voltage technology for protecting sensitive information at the data level, while permitting applications to function with that data in the cloud or on mobile devices. This data-centric information protection technique is already in use in numerous global enterprise data protection deployments and with leading cloud-based payment processors. Voltage is now extending it to mobile payments.

The Voltage Security Mobile Plus initiative will protect mobile data in the following ways:
